Blogoversary Blog Hop Today!!!

Today we celebrate the 1st blogoversary of my sister's blog. She has done so many wonderful cards, LO, and other projects this year. I can't thank her enough for introducing me to the blog world and showing me how to become a better paper crafter.

If you arrived here from Sarah -  then you are in the right place. If you just happened by my blog please go to and start the hop from the beginning.

The project I made for her blog hop is a paper bag album. I had never made one of these before and was excited to see what I could cre8. Here it is! The pictures do not do it justice.

Each bag holds two inserts and I have decorated them to match the pages they are sandwiched between.

My vision for this album is to put all of the birthday pictures that I can find of my twin and I and display them in this birthday album. I just need to track down more pictures.

I would love for you to leave me some comments on how I can improve on this project. This is the first time I have made a paper bag album and think I will make a few more. They are so easy and make great gifts.

Now for the blog candy!!!
I am putting together a grab bag of stickers, embellishments, rhinestones, and some other fun stuff. All you have to do is follow my blog and leave me a comment. Don't forget to include an e-mail address so I can get a hold of you when you win. Thanks for Hopping along.
